The two hi points I have are not the best I have , but they are not the worst I've seen. They do function and function well.
What hi point needs... market competition. I have become a bit of a 1911 fanboy, but I have mad respect for hi point (many here who have read my posts can attest to that) we need some more makers that will make a gun as good or better than a hi point at a comparable price. This could possibly drive prices down and quality up across the board according to my redneck economics way of thinking. Before anyone screams that the big makers would start cutting corners, let me point out, I don't think they will. Hi point goes bang. Niche market, like the Saturday night specials of yesterday's lore, except less dangerous to the one behind the gun. There would be no need for the other makers such as Colt, Springfield, Kimber, or Remington to cut costs and corners, they would still have their following.
For the record, I don't consider cobray or jiminez to be competitors to hi point. Their quality, CS, and warranty just isn't there.
